Thank you all for your fantastic response to our “fill a bucket” promotion.
What a day we had for picking blueberries!
Over 1000 lbs of berries were picked!
Here is a report for tomorrow July 7th”
Picking is, of course, more difficult now but there are still many ripe berries to be picked yet and many green ones turning.
So for Friday, we will be open 8 am to 12 noon.
We’ve decided to keep the “fill a bucket” promotion for Friday and Saturday but it will be much harder to fill a bucket.
See guidelines in previous post.
Here is the zone breakdown of available ripe berries by 1 gallon buckets
Zone 3 – (first 12 rows) 10 buckets
Blueberry Picking Alert!!! “Fill A Bucket Day” THURSDAY, JULY 6TH, 8 am – 8 pm.
**$10 per 1 GALLON BUCKET**
This is a Special Day of picking due to the overwhelming amount of ripe berries available.
1. We will provide the buckets & bags.
2. A full bucket will be level with the top of the bucket
3. Berries less than a full bucket will be $3/pound.
This is a great buy for local, naturally grown, fresh, blueberries.
We had a terrific day of selling blueberries. It’s so nice to have plenty of blueberries for everyone. Your comments have been a blessing to us also.
The ripening continues to keep ahead of the birds so barring any major happening we should start next week pretty strong.
Remember we are closed on Sunday.
Open today! Lots of nice medium to large berries. Picking is easy. Get them while they last. Bring the family or friends out for a beautiful day picking and picnicking at the farm, 5 miles east of Kirksville. HOURS today: 8 am to 5 pm.
Still pretty easy picking.
Don’t miss your chance at picking fresh local blueberries this year. Season is going strong but usually comes to an abrupt ending.
